You can check my previous posts on Create views using SharePoint designer 2010, Create list using SharePoint Designer 2010.

SharePoint designer is a very powerful tool for developers and power users. There are some features of SharePoint designer 2010 like below:

- Administrators can decide per site collection what exactly a power user operating SharePoint Designer is permitted to do. Check this article for more information on this.

- The new ribbon-based Office 2010 environment is now context sensitive. Means the option will come according to the tab you chose rather showing all options.

- It’s easy to create pages, pagelayouts, lists, and workflows etc.

- It’s easy to create content types and use them immediately for a list or library.

- In assets library you can store and deploy resources such as images, stylesheets, and support files.

- You can get the list views as XSLT and modify the views by editing the underlying XSLT.

- You can get access to external data sources such as web services, databases, XML files, and scripts.

- You can easily create BCS data sources, modify then and use them.

- You can create and modify list workflows, site workflows, and reusable workflows.
